MEGHAN SCHILLER: Hi, everyone, it's Meghan Schiller with KDKA. Tonight at 6 o'clock, we are telling you about a story that happened over the weekend. A woman says her dog was shot multiple times. They live in the home behind me. They say that the dog somehow got out of this front gate, it was either left open or the dog snuck through. And a man was walking his dog along this street, this is Maple Street in West Mifflin. The homeowner tells me that that man opened fire and police say they found four spent shell casings.

The dog had a blood trail that started here, she said, where it looks like a little parking spot that she says is their property. They say the blood trail started there and went all the way up the street to the right. And they later found the dog, Brody, in the woods, got him to an emergency vet. He is alive.

But now these homeowners say they don't know what to make of this. They have not talked to the person that they say shot their dog. And they want to know, in a residential area, is this something that is OK? They say it's not. They say that their dog is not aggressive. Obviously, the man who opened fire told police he felt otherwise.

The full story, tonight at 6:00. We're talking with police, getting the latest from them. You're also going to hear from the owner of the dog, tonight at 6:00.
